Google reveals Nexus 8 tablet on Android 4.4 KitKat site?

Google may have shown off the unannounced Nexus 8 tablet

Google has just launched the Nexus 5 smartphone and might have shown off a Nexus 8 tablet.

Along with the Nexus 5 release, Google launched the latest version of Android, 4.4 KitKat. On Google's promotional site for the new mobile operating system is a photo of a woman holding a tablet which might be the Nexus 8.

Another image on the page clearly shows the 2013 model of the Nexus 7 but the other one, shown above, has a tablet which looks similar but definitely different to Google's budget tablet. It looks like it has a larger screen and certainly has slimmer bezels at the top and bottom than the current Nexus 7.

Google launched the Nexus 5 last week with no sign of a new Nexus 10 model so perhaps this will be the replacement, or perhaps it's just a render of a device that doesn't exists. We can't say for sure but we will keep an eye on the situation and let you know if we hear of any developments.

Would you be tempted by an 8-inch Nexus 8 tablet instead of the Nexus 7, Nexus or iPad mini?

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
